ICP-OES Applications eHandbook to Help Boost Productivity

Agilent Technologies has produced this 100+ page e-book in which you’ll find tips on how to boost ICP-OES productivity, handle difficult samples, and simplify method development. There’s an overview on how ICP-OES addresses the specific needs of environmental, food and agriculture, energy and chemicals labs – as well as 18 detailed application-specific papers.

ICP-OES-eBook.pngHow Agilent’s 5110 ICP-OES can help boost productivity
The unique design of the 5110 introduces the concept of Synchronous Vertical Dual View measurements for
the first time. Most commercially available ICP-OES instruments can take measurements using either radial or axial viewing of the plasma. The choice of view depends on the element being quantified and the matrix of the sample. ‘Dual-view’ ICP instruments can take measurements in both axial and radial view. Most require you to set up a series of sequential measurements, selecting which elements are measured in axial mode, and which are measured in radial mode.
5110_ICP-OES.pngInstead of taking measurements using an axial view of the plasma and then another measurement of the radial view, the 5110’s design needs only a single measurement per sample delivering accurate results in the quickest possible time.
